Trend Micro Collaborates With NXP On Virtualized Customer Premise Equipment
Trend Micro Incorporated, a global leader of security software and solutions, today announced a cooperation with NXP® Semiconductors N.V to join forces for a virtualized Customer Premises Equipment (vCPE) project on NXP’s ARM-based Network Function Virtualization (NFV) platform. The joint effort, powered by Trend Micro’s Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) technology, will be showcased at Computex 2016 in Taipei (May 31-June 4).
“With the introduction of NFV, security is no longer limited to on-premise networks, bringing new opportunities to telecom carriers and providers for service delivery,” said Dr. Terence Liu, vice president, Network Threat Defense Technology Group, Trend Micro. “For more than 27 years, we have been committed to protecting our customers, and as technology evolves, we continuously innovate and develop solutions for next-generation networks such as NFV.”
Trend Micro’s DPI technology provides comprehensive network security and management functions, such as virtual patching, parental control and quality of services (QoS), and has been widely adopted in a variety of products, from home routers to enterprise-facing Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) and Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW). This vCPE integration is optimized for NXP’s QorIQ® LS2085A processor in order to provide better performance for carrier-grade NFV environment.
“NFV requires a scalable, open platform to deliver security throughout the network,” said Noy Kucuk, Vice President of Product Management for NXP’s Digital Networking business. “Integrating security acceleration and standard ARM CPUs, NXP’s QorIQ LS series of ARM-based processors lay the ideal foundation for NFV infrastructure. We’re pleased to collaborate with Trend Micro as service providers prepare large-scale vCPE deployments later this year.”
